FIRST AID IN THE WORKPLACE

Providing immediate and effective first aid to workers or others who have been injured or become ill at work may reduce the severity of the injury or illness and promote recovery.

In some instances, this could mean the difference between life and death. Persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) are responsible for providing, as far as is reasonably practicable, a safe working environment and adequate facilities for the welfare of their workers.

WHAT DO I NEED TO CONSIDER?

WHAT DO I NEED TO CONSIDER?

The risk can be considered low or high depending on the workplace.

A low risk workplace is one where workers are not exposed to hazards that could result in serious injury or illness. Examples of low risk workplaces include offices, shops or libraries. Potential work-related injuries and illnesses requiring first aid would be minor in nature.


A high-risk workplace refers to a workplace where workers are exposed to hazards that could result in serious injury or illness and would require first aid, for example factories or motor vehicle workshops.


SUMMARY

WHAT DO I NEED TO CONSIDER?

The 2011 Work Health and Safety Regulations place specific obligations on PCBUs to:

  • Provide first aid equipment and make sure each worker has access to equipment.
  • Ensure access to facilities to administer first aid.
  • Ensure an adequate number of workers are trained to administer first aid in the workplace or that workers have access to aN adequate number of people who are trained in first aid.
  • Ensure workers are aware of information and know how to carry out first aid.

The Code of Practice on First Aid in the Workplace outlines how many first aiders different sorts of workplaces should have:

  • Low risk workplaces — one first aider for every 50 workers.
  • High risk workplaces — one first aider for every 25 workers.
